It was privileged to help serve dinner last Thursday night at the Baldwin Center. By serving those wonderful people, I received much more than I gave. Franklin Community Church, Franklin, Mi will continue to do all we can for the Baldwin Center.

The Baldwin Center is a wonderful resource in Pontiac, Michigan offering hope to those who need a little help. It is a place that welcomes people who need a warm meal, a warm coat, or a warm smile. Through the educational programs adults are earning their GED and children are beginning their education with added support from teachers at the center.

I have observed people standing in line waiting for food to be served and then watched them leave after having been served a hot meal.

I have been serving as a Board Member to The Baldwin Center for over a year. I have seen first hand the commitment, compassion and dedication the Baldwin staff and its volunteers give to their clientele. The Baldwin Center is more then a place where people can get three meals a day, counseling and financial assistance; but rather a place where people come to learn the skills to empower themselves to make a difference in their lives.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing each month how many more people the Baldwin Center services, the number of new offering the center provides.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help increase their funding, identify and encourage individuals to volunteer their time at the center.

I am highly impressed at the number of services Baldwin Center provides for those who are under-served in the community of Pontiac, MI. Adults enjoy ESL and fitness classes. They receive emergency funding when monies are available. And, the homeless are provided opportunity to have showers, birthday gifts, layettes for new babies, and clothing from Baldwin's Clothing Closet. Youth receive tutoring, day camp, trips, back-to-school backpacks, and special events among many educational and fun programs. We have a connection with Oakland University that gives them vision into the future and hope for success. Meals are served to hundreds of people daily. Lunches and breakfasts are hearty and generous. Almost all programs on site include a meal. Baldwin enjoys the services of thousands of volunteers from all walks of life. When I retired two years ago, I left my heart with the people on staff and especially those we served.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my counseling sessions where people learned much about relating to others and managing in the community. Life skills were taught and demonstrated to me by behavior management as well as progress within family and work settings. I have received notes and letters of thanks for taking time to be caring and encouraging.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

encourage people to give more of their time to the administration of the agency. By this, I mean enlarge the Board of Directors with skilled people and suggest that a structure be created wherein mature employees could offer their funding and financial skills. These areas are crucial and deserve compensation.
